Kristin Olsen, the Assemblywoman is a Detriment to the Central Valley

Once again the grandstanding of Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen has wasted our time and money.  Her latest foray into bill writing has been pushed to the wayside. Her feeble, poorly written bill AB1861 which makes a felony for any teacher to have a romantic relationship with a student even if the student were over 18.  While this feel good measure might appeal to some, it mostly seems to be  geared to throwing meat to her base using a newly found popular cause.

She dutifully ignores any and all other occupations where a minor might fall prey to a person in power. Taking away ones retirement might seem to be just but why not apply it across the board.

We believe teachers shouldn’t be singled out when so many professions  come into contact with minors.

If  Ms. Olsen would ever truly apply herself to improving the economy, or any effective  goal other than  the pointless self-serving one she has chosen we could at least consider her for Assembly District 12, but with her track record we would be better off retiring her from public office.
